Call For Scripts: The End of the World…in Five Plays

It’s the End of the World…but we still want your scripts…

This Autumn Off The Rock Productions will be performing a theatrical production comprised of five short plays that take place within the final hour before the end of the world.

Interested in submitting a play? Then read on…

Writing Brief:

  • Context: An international crisis/event that will impact upon everyone on the planet in the next hour. 1 hour until the end of the world. The plays are set with this in the background, but it is not stated what the calamity is – we just see how the character/characters’ lives are affected by it; how relationships hold up (or not); what people decide is important with time running out…
  • Plays should have no more than four characters.
  • They should be 10-15 minutes in length.
  • Scripts should be original work that has not been performed before in any medium.
  • We do not accept adaptations of existing work.
  • One entry per person is permitted.
  • Please attach scripts, with a cover sheet, in PDF or Word format.
  • Pieces will be read by our panel anonymously. Consequently, could you please put your name on the cover sheet only.
  • We accept submissions from all over the world.
  • Please submit scripts to by 10pm on Thursday 31st May.
  • If you have any questions please contact us at


We look forward to reading your work!
